EPC Sunday Announcements (10/31/21)

Welcome Newcomers to EPC!

If you are new to EPC, welcome and God’s peace to you!  We are so glad that you were able to find and join us.  We hope that the worship is both encouraging and convicting to you in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We would love to connect with you.  To do this, please go to our website, epcministry.org, and click on the “Newcomer” button on the upper right corner of our homepage.  You’ll find some introductory information there along with a form towards the bottom to share some contact information.  If you fill that out, we would love to send you a welcoming email and to encourage you.  We look forward to getting to know you and walking after God’s joy in the Gospel together.

EPC Season of “Rest & Refreshment”

We have transitioned into a season of “rest & refreshment” at EPC.  If you go to our website (epcministry.org) and click on “Announcements” under the “Connect” button, you will find a document laying out what this time will look like as we seek to come to a healthy place of participating and serving Christ in a healthy manner under Godly order.  Please pray for the leaders and servants of EPC as we look forward to how God will bless and grow us during this time.

EPC In-Person & Livestream Sunday Worship

For future reference, you can find our “in-person worship guidelines” and the “Sunday Worship YouTube Livestream” link on the homepage of our website at epcministry.org.

If you are joining us via "live-stream" and experience any issues, please email us at "emoffice@epcsj.org" to let us know as we grow in this new process. The "live-stream" link on our website will be updated every Sunday morning.

If you are with us in-person today and would like to give or tithe here at church, there is an offering box near between the Sanctuary and the EM Lobby where you can drop off your offering envelopes.  Otherwise, you can continue to give God your offerings online on our website under “Give”.


The EPC App is live on our website for both iOS and Android.  Please go and download it for easy access to notifications for church events and announcements, sermons and content, ways to give, and more.  For those joining us “in-person” for Sunday Worship, you can now also register your attendance in the EPC EM App!  A big thank you to our “Media Team” who worked so hard to make this happen!

EPC Young Adult Large Group

Young adults!  Join us this Friday, November 5, for our Large Group.  We will start at 6 PM with dinner together and have a time of worship and the Word as we go through our series on “Discipleship”.  Look out for the email to RSVP on Thursday, we look forward to seeing you there!

EPC Virtual Discipleship with “Habits of Grace”

We kicked off our church-wide virtual discipleship course in “Habits of Grace” (David Mathis) on September 29, 2021.  You can find an overview and schedule of what the course looks like on our website (“epcministry.org”) and in our EPC EM app (“EPC English Ministry”) with information about what to read for each session, where you can find the session video and reflection questions, and how to download the book for free in various formats (i.e. PDF, MOBI and EPUB).  The videos and reflection questions are being posted on Wednesday afternoons which you can find on our website and app (go to “Media” and click on “EPC Discipleship”) as well as on our YouTube page..  

This is a great opportunity during our season of rest and refreshment to commit ourselves to God’s Word and to reflect on how we are submitting to the Gospel in the daily rhythms of our lives.  We highly encourage all members of EPC to join us in this time of discipleship!

EPC Education Department Harvest Festival

EPC is holding a “Harvest Festival” on October 31 from 3-5 PM.  This is for our education department to share the Gospel for our youth during the Halloween season.  There will be worship and time for games and activities.  Please look out for information from the education pastors of your children.  

If you will be participating in the “Harvest Festival”, please park on the KM side of the parking lot or past the church vans so that the Education Department has space to set up, thank you!

Communion at EPC

We will begin holding Communion on Sunday, October 31, and hold it on the last Sunday of each month afterwards.  This is such an important discipline of faith as we are reminded that we live in and out of the body and blood of Christ given for us.  We look forward to practicing Communion together and we will have information coming out in the next couple weeks to answer any questions and help us prepare for this.

Post-Sunday Worship Prayer and Reflection Room

If you would like to continue to pray and have a quiet space to reflect after Sunday service,
we have provided a space in the Conference Room located in the Lobby (next to Pastor Paul’s office).  Please feel free to continue to worship freely; we hope this is an encouragement to you.  If you would like to receive prayer, please reach out to Pastor Paul Shim after service.

EPC Sunday Sermon Reflection Questions

We will be posting the "Sermon Reflection Questions" in the bulletin as well as on the website under "Announcements" to better give access to the various life groups that meet.

EPC Pastoral Care and Prayer Support

If you are in need of pastoral care or would like to request prayer support from the pastors of EPC, please don’t hesitate to go to our website (epcministry.org) and click on “Pastoral Care and Prayer Requests'' under the “Connect” button.  You can keep it confidential if you wish to do so but we would love to serve you by walking with you in fellowship and prayer!
